It sounds like you have a good idea , good connections, and good understanding of how the ASICS can be designed, especially with a computer science background. Many places seem to be sold out of ASICs right now. I am a little bit more interested in investing in cryptocurrencies than I am the miners at this point but I am still waiting on my first ASIC miners to check them out. You make the design sound simple, and they don’t look too complicated. However, it seems that various hardware suppliers are currently out of stock. It is the end of the year so hopefully there is more production soon. I am continuing to explore Chinese hardware vendors on Alibaba. There are ASIC’s on there, but I’m not quite sure how to choose the right ones, or how to program them. I’m a Geographer, somewhat of a computer scientist, but also very noob to this. “ASIC chip board” search on Alibaba shows some cool looking hardware, and there are even some suppliers offering free sample. I would like to know exactly what to get, though. Dissecting and recycling an older faulty ASIC miner would be helpful. I might buy an old S3 after all, but I don’t want to replicate older tech and I want my first D3 miners to get here first,
Do you have any ideas of ASIC chip providers?
I believe that you can do it, man.
I’ve been mostly chilling over the holidays but this is a cool project to be continued, hehe.
It’s cool that people are coming together here to share their ideas and solutions from different sciences.
I hope everyone has been having a good holiday season, and looking forward to a happy new year!
